Worldwide, it is estimated that 50 million people suffer from dementia and that this number will rise to 140 millions by 2050, unless effective treatments are found. Antibodies are powerful tools in clinical research, thanks to their strong binding ability and high specificity. Dr Aprile will present how rational design and protein engineering can be used to generate antibodies as potential therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.
